I have the midori green hatchback dx model. The car isn't fast by any means but it's really reliable. I like the storage capacity of the hatchback. It's a simple car and because of that simple maintenance will keep this car running for a very long time.

I bought this car new. Since then I've driven it cross-country 3 times (fully loaded with stuff), through every possible climate and condition you can imagine. 10 years, 115K miles, it has never let me down once. All it needs is oil changes every 3K and regular service every 15K miles. Avg 38 MPG, quick around town, can haul more than some SUVs. The only downside is interior noise is a bit loud and the seats are not the most supportive. Only now am I seriously considering buying an other car (Honda Fit?) since this one has performed admirably.

Great car. Gets great mileage even
when I beat on it. Took out the rear
interior and ran a 17.4 on bald street
tires at Bristol Motor Dragway. Paint
was crappy from previous owner but it
was repainted after hail damage and

Just sold it after 7 1/2 years. Will
miss it a lot. Hardly any trouble at
all; very quick, reliable. Only reason
to sell was I wanted an Outback Sport.
But can't recommend the Honda Civic
hatchback highly enough.
